News: Marvel Hires The Rider Director For The Eternals

In the wake of her critical acclaim for The Rider,  Disney and Marvel have hired Chloe Zhao, to helm their newest universe expanding film, The Eternals. The movie will be a part of Phase 4. The movie was announced earlier this year with most news stalling out until they hired a pair of directors for the project. Now, Zhao is set to helm the new movie that's aiming for a culturally diverse cast. 

The Eternals follows a group at war against the Celestials, who were previously introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy as the being’s head that formed Knowhere, and as previous owners of the Infinity Stones. Created by Jack Kirby in the '70s,  hopes are high that this movie will add more depth to the already dense mythology of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
